any red lines or new lines which is what the romney campaign was calling on him to do. it would be astonishing if he would do that at this stage, only for election purposes in a campaign season. i mean this is what you would expect a president to do. he took the line that he's firmly drawn to date. >> diplomacy, sanctions on iranian crude oil and the banks that handle that. in the red line, that means, what does that mean? military action? i think that -- nobody wants to go there. >> well, what's he going to do? spell out if iran crosses this line, then there will be an attack? that is not language that the president has used before. so it would be an enormous departure to do that here today. so it's not the administration's policy. it would -- no one expected him to say that today. >> okay, now, also, the president really addressed those -- the violent attack t that have been spurred because of this anti-muslim video. and really saying, extremists use violence because they have nothing else. they don't have jobs. they're not creating a better society. what else was rethe trying

's going on. dagen: what's going on with mitt romney, he can't seem to put together a cohesive discussion about the state of the economy that is resonating with voters. you mentioned in the column that he was talking about trade cheaters and energy independence, which seem wholly removed from what is really happening right here right now on the ground for the american people. >> well, the ads that target china as a trade cheater are aimed at voters in northern ohio and around the great lakes where the auto workers are, but obama has been running his own ads hitting china, so i think they kind of neutralize one another. we had a report this morning that durable goods orders have dropped the most since january 09. orders for motor vehicles and motor vehicle parts dropped 11% in august. whatever obama did to bail out the auto industry, those people working in the industries in the northern ohio are the ones affected by a figure like that. and i don't quite understand why romney isn't going directly at obama's economic record, while obama has been president. connell: because in that part of t
about energy a little bit. he never has a plan. romney has a good plan, and i believe romney will carry it out. that all the people that have run for president since nixon, republican and democrat, have always said elect me and we'll be energy independent. romney has not said that. he has said with a north american alliance, that we can bring together mexico, canada, and the united states, and we can be energy independent using all of north america. but that's good because they're good neighbors. we work well together. all that can be accomplished, but romney is realistic about a plan. his plan is use our own resources. >> and we know that's a job creator. do you think he has a shot to win the election? >> oh, i think he will win the election. i think he has energy as a big component. there are 30 states in the united states now that produce energy. when i went in the energy business a long, long time ago, there was only nine states. there are 30 states now. so millions of jobs are created by the oil and gas industry in the united states. >> right, right. let me get your take on natural
romney/derian tax plan could call to an end to long for a standing tax codes items. rich edson joins me now with who wins and who loses with the proposed plan. rich: democrats claim this will hit the middle class and cut taxes for wealthy americans. a fox business exclusive republican candidate paul ryan says wealthy americans like mitt romney will pay more. >> here's how it works. higher income people can use lots of tax shelters to shelter their income from taxation. close those tax shelters and more income is subject to taxation which allow us to lower tax rates for everybody. rich: some families and businesses will pay more because there will be fewer deductions. others will pay less with lower rates and in theory it balances out. for who is paying more or less we don't have those details from the romney campaign. they refuse to say how much the deductions they have to curb or even many to accomplish their goal. a senate source tells us the supercommittee discussed a rate cut and preliminary assumption show the cost of $1 trillion over ten years. congress has not officially run thos
romney, how much is that playing into what we'ree hearing about this and other issues? >> i don't think what the prime minister did yesterday had any, but i think people seem to discard the importance of personal relations. in a politics and international relations or even national affairs, not love affairs and not all about rumors. at the same time personal relations come and all you have to do to have this brought home to you is remember the very bad relations between president roosevelt in the second world war, a very great extent america's decision to enter the war, to help the united kingdom because of the disdain and distrust between those two leaders. i believe personal relationships to count and i hope whoever the next resident i is, relations between him and the prime minister of israel will be as they always were. warm, trustful, genuine and ones of great strategic alliance. connell: thank you very much for coming into the studio today. appreciate it. thanks. dagen: vast majority of americans believe everyone should pay some federal income tax, but is a fix for that a sure los
